Journalism is dead.  Tweets and rumors are now news.  Cutesy lists have replaced content.  And aggregate sites are wretched hives of scum and villainy.

I like this one:

NBC News' covered the train explosion in Canada and decided that New Hampshire no longer existed:

Looking at the map shown, the borders of New Hampshire are showing, but it's labeled as Vermont.
The borders of what is actually Vermont is missing, showing that area as being part of new York.

DNRTFA

Did they go into any detail about how news agencies are trying so hard to be THE FIRST to break news on a story, that they will report anything they hear with no fact checking?
I think the worst example of this goes back as far as 9/11 when there were like 30 hijacked planes, bombs in buildings, and 50,000 people dead.

Point being, they haven't really changed since then, have they?

I was wanting to add "adopting the Internet practice of using fail as a noun meaning the same thing as failure, which is a word that already exists," but I see that was subby's doing, not Huff's.

In conclusion, you suck, subby.

I think KTVU getting "Sum Ting Wong" with the names of the pilots of Asiana Flight 214 should top the list. XD

I know it's wrong, but that was and remains one of the funniest damn things that I have ever seen.  Kills me every freaking time I watch the video.

You were wanting to add....

...a language failure example?
